The Folk Life Museum’s collection

The Collection

The Folk Life Museum also has an extensive specialist folklore library in the building, with 14,000 individual volumes and subscriptions to 80 specialist periodicals and magazines. Attached it are the archives with a substantial collection of source material about Styrian folk culture and multi-faceted picture archives with around 20,000 colour slides and many historic photos.

The Folk Life Museum acts as a platform for a living, critical exploration of issues to do with the past and present of folk culture, and its activities are therefore geared to people of all ages.
